Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

SOURCE: Bose Wave AW1 need to know how to safely disassemble it.

Since I was not able to find either an owner's manual, a repair manual,a schematic, or any other help for disassembling or repairing a BoseWave model AW1 online, I had to just experiment with trying to fix theproblem I had with it. Bose also would not accept the unit to bereturned for repair because they said it was too old. They wouldonly offer a small trade in amount on a purchase of a new replacementunit.

So, I first tried removing all the screws on the bottom of the unit tosee how it might be disassembled. While I was able to get thebottom of the unit removed by unplugging four connectors, that did notprovide access to the upper portion of the unit.

Next, I removed screws on each side and across the back of the unit andthat allowed the top portion of the unit to come loose, but not yet beremoved because a cassette tape was still stuck inside. At this point,I concluded that since the unit was not working any way, I may as well(gently) try to force open the cassette lid. That sort of workedin that it broke the cassette, but fortunately did not break the Bose.I was then able to slide off the cassette slot lid, remove thecassette, and then remove the top part of the Bose case.

To my great relief, I found that this action relieved whatever wascausing the buttons on top of the Bose to not work, and they apparentlybecame reset and working properly. Just getting the stuckcassette tape out of the unit seemed to allow all of the buttons thathad quit working to work again. I don't know if the cassette tapewill work or not, but since my main objective was to get the inputbutton to work, I may not even bother with trying to get the cassettetape to work again. I'll try to post a photo atwww.upquick.com/view/bose.jpg

Unfortunately, the push buttons can become oxidized on their contact surfaces, making them intermittant at best, to useless. Can you operate these functions with the remote control?

Bose does not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively making themselves the only repair center for their products. Your only safe repair method is to contact the service/repair center at www.bose.com. They will likely offer you a flat rate repair or credit towards the purchase of a new unit.

Bose 3-2-1 Remote Control stopped working


I purchased a LAZBOY universal remote (at Fred Meyers, on sale for $9.99) and after a bunch of research and trial-&-error, was able
program it with a code (1629) which works reasonably well with the
Bose 3-2-1.

I don't have all the system-level functions (which I never utilized anyway) but do have all the basics as far as power, volume, source, and CD/DVD control.

Bose not working at all


Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics of parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

Bose wave radio


Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.
